Oscars: 13 Deserving Contenders From 2017 So Far

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As we rapidly approach 2017’s midway point, there are already a number of films that deserve to be remembered by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences when Oscar ballots go out at the end of the year. Academy voters notoriously have short memories, though it’s hardly their fault alone; studios are so obsessed with back-loading the year with prestige product that in the rush, earlier gems are often forgotten.

So we’re here to help. Perhaps members will take a moment to bear these contenders in mind before the awards season glut finally hits.

Note: This list spotlights films theatrically released to the paying public. There have been festival standouts that won’t hit theaters until the coming months, and a number would bear mentioning. Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler are all fantastic in Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” for example. And David Lowery’s vision for “A Ghost Story” makes for one of the greatest motion pictures of the year. But we’ll stick to what will hit theaters as of June 30 for this piece’s purposes.


Oscars at the Halfway Mark: ‘Logan,’ ‘Get Out’ and Women Directors


Best Picture: “The Big Sick

Don’t dismiss it just because it’s the funniest movie of the year so far, it’s also the most heartfelt and intelligent. Willing to mix big issues with big laughs, the tone is held together perfectly by director Michael Showalter, the outstanding cast and an excellent script. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: “Baby Driver”; Get Out”; “Logan”; “Okja

Best Director: Bong Joon Ho (“Okja”)

Netflix’s Cannes entry is a whole lot of movie, and a whole lot of vision. Director Bong Joon Ho dazzles with his deft kinetic touch while also pulling an impressive performance out of young lead Seo-Hyun Ahn to anchor the zany satire. But as ever, Bong proves a master of balancing tonal shifts, ultimately crafting a moving piece of work. (KT)

– Other Standouts: Sofia Coppola (“The Beguiled”); Michael Showalter (“The Big Sick”); Jordan Peele (“Get Out”); Trey Edward Shults (“It Comes At Night”)

Best Actor: Sam Elliott (“The Hero”)

The role of an aging star who never realized his greatness fits Elliott like a glove. It’s also a reminder of how underutilized he has been on the big screen. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: Richard Gere (“Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer”); Daniel Kaluuya (“Get Out”); James McAvoy (“Split”); Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick”)

Best Actress: Sally Hawkins (“Maudie”)

Hawkins is always excellent and reliable, but she outdoes herself portraying Canadian painter Maud Lewis. Crippled by arthritis, married to a rough fisherman (a great Ethan Hawke), Hawkins allows Maud’s joy to shine through. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: Jessica Chastain (“The Zookeeper’s Wife”); Anne Hathaway (“Colossal”); Salma Hayek (“Beatriz at Dinner”); Rachel Weisz (“My Cousin Rachel”)

Best Supporting Actor: Patrick Stewart (“Logan”)

Let’s be honest; take away the superhero element and this would be an Oscar slam-dunk. Stewart’s portrayal of Charles Xavier in waning health with a broken mind will break your heart. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: Sharlto Copley (“Free Fire”); Ethan Hawke (“Maudie”); LilRel Howery (“Get Out”); Ray Romano (“The Big Sick”)

Best Supporting Actress: Betty Gabriel (“Get Out”)

Jordan Peele’s impressive directorial debut deserves a shout-out in virtually every category, but hopefully no one snoozes on Betty Gabriel’s unsettling work as a housekeeper trapped in “the sunken place.” She etches that inner turmoil across her face with such aplomb you simply cannot look away. (KT)

– Other Standouts: Laura Dern (“Wilson”); Holly Hunter (“The Big Sick”); Dafne Keen (“Logan”); Terry Pheto (“A United Kingdom”)


Playback: Sam Elliott on ‘The Hero’ and Living His Childhood Dream

Best Screenplay: “Shimmer Lake

Technically ineligible for Oscars as it didn’t receive a theatrical run, that doesn’t stop this twisty thriller from earning our consideration. What sounds like a gimmick — a crime drama told backwards — proves absolutely essential to telling a fascinating story. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: “The Big Sick”; “Get Out”; “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore”; Split

Best Cinematography: “Kong: Skull Island

Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ simian sequel was a bit of a tonal omelette, but one element that gave it an unexpected level of iconography was Larry Fong’s striking photography. Sunburnt vistas and heat-rippled frames sometimes call back to “Apocalypse Now,” but more often they give the film its own intriguing visual identity. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Alien: Covenant”; “The Beguiled”; “The Lost City of Z”; “Song to Song

Best Costume Design: “Wonder Woman

Speaking of iconography, one of the eye-popping elements of Patty Jenkins’ landmark superhero entry is the iconic image actress Gal Gadot strikes as the eponymous Amazon. But beyond Diana Prince’s well-known threads, there’s a whole array of dazzling outfits on the screen, from the battle gear of Themyscira to 1920s fashion and World War I attire. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Beauty and the Beast”; “The Beguiled”; “The Great Wall”; “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Best Film Editing: “LA92”

Lest we forget, National Geographic’s Emmy-contending L.A riots documentary is also eligible for Oscar consideration this year. Last year “O.J.: Made in America” garnered some attention for its handling of tons of material, and hopefully reminded voters that documentary editing ought to be recognized. Reams of footage were assembled from countless sources to drive this particular version of the story, which was also covered elegantly by director John Ridley in “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992.” (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Baby Driver”; “Get Out”; “Logan”; “Okja


The Big Sick’: How Kumail Nanjiani, Emily V. Gordon Brought Their Real-Life Love Story to Screen

Best Production Design: “Beauty and the Beast”

It’s a tall order to match the stunning animation of the original film, but the “Beauty and the Beast” team pulled it off. Every ornate touch, from the Beast’s castle to the world of Belle’s village, was a visual feast. (Jr)

– Other Standouts: “The Great Wall”; “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2”; “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword”; “Wonder Woman

Best Sound Editing: “Baby Driver

Being something of a musical-slash-actioner, Edgar Wright’s latest owes everything to its soundtrack. But more than that, the precision with which sound is layered and cut to enhance the various tracks scattered throughout gives the film an innervating sense of propulsion. When there’s no sound, you’re desperate for it to scream back. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Free Fire”; “John Wick: Chapter Two”; “Okja”; “Transformers: The Last Knight

Best Visual Effects: “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2

It’s a pity we can’t throw “War for the Planet of the Apes” (July 14) in here, but more on that in due time. Marvel’s latest installment of the “Guardians” franchise doubles down on rendered environments. When you have a character who at times serves as the actual location (I guess you have to see the film to understand), the sky is the limit on VFX. (KT)

– Other Standouts: “Beauty and the Beast”; “Ghost in the Shell”; The Great Wall”; “Okja

How a Chance Encounter With Terrence Malick Turned Trey Edward Shults Into a Filmmaker

16 June 2017 1:33 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When Trey Edward Shults was 18 years old, he went to Hawaii for the summer to stay with his aunt Krisha – yes, the same Krisha who starred in his 2016 breakout “Krisha.” His aunt was connected to small filmmaking community on the island and got her nephew jobs working on commercials and other productions.

“I lucked out and got on this Terrence Malick movie,” said Shults when he was guest on IndeWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit podcast. The small crew, sans Malick, was shooting footage of a volcano for the documentary “Voyage of Time.”

“It was five guys with an IMAX camera,” said Shults. “I loved movies, but I didn’t know how they were made, really. I didn’t even get what the guy [the film loader] in the changing bag with the film was »

Ryan Gosling Forms Production Company Arcana With Ken Kao

14 June 2017 11:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Gosling and producer Ken Kao have formed Arcana — a production company that will develop a wide range of unique and diverse material for film and television.

Arcana’s first project is director Yorgos Lanthimos’ upcoming film “The Favourite,” which stars Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman and just wrapped principal photography in the U.K. The story is based on a Deborah Davis and Tony McNamara script that follows the clandestine personal and political machinations of the reign of Queen Anne.

Great Job, Internet!: To The Wonder Woman reimagines the blockbuster as a dreamy Terrence Malick film

8 June 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Look, you don’t need us to tell you that Wonder Woman is a good movie (though we have, a few times, actually). Just look at its Rotten Tomatoes score, which sits at an admirable 93 percent. You know who might be jealous? Terrence Malick, whose last three (non-documentary) feature films—Song To Song, Knight Of Cups, and To The Wonder—average out at a tepid 45-percent approval rating.

So, should Malick maybe lend his inimitable style the superhero world? Hey, it’s not so far-fetched. Video artist Nelson Carvajal proves it with To The Wonder Woman, an impressive trailer that pairs the audio from To The Wonder with visuals from Wonder Woman:

By emphasizing Wonder Woman’s love story and scenic tableau over its action, the footage dovetails intriguingly with Javier Bardem’s solemn, starry-eyed monologue and Hanan Townshend’s stirring orchestral score.

Mostly, though, it serves as a ...

Holly Hunter and Carrie Coon Lead First Trailer for ‘Strange Weather’

7 June 2017 6:01 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After making a brief impression in Terrence Malick’s Song to Song and following a part in this summer’s The Big Sick, Holly Hunter will take the lead in Strange Weather. The drama, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall, is directed by Katherine Dieckmann (who helmed the underrated Diggers) and follows a woman who searches for resolution after the death of her son.

Ahead of a late July release, the first trailer has now landed, which previews what looks to be a strong central performance from Hunter. While we missed it at Tiff last year, reactions seemed to be mostly strong, so we’re looking forward to checking it out. Also starring Carrie Coon, Kim Coates, and Glenne Headly, see the trailer below.

First Full Trailer for Alien Invasion Thriller 'Revolt' Featuring Lee Pace

3 June 2017 11:23 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

"Must have some weakness, something we can use against them." A full-length trailer has been unveiled for an indie sci-fi project titled Revolt, from director Joe Miale making his feature debut. The film stars Lee Pace as a Us soldier in Africa attempting to fight back against a brutal alien invasion. This kind of seems a bit like a mash-up between District 9 and Transformers, with robot-like alien creatures taking over. Also with Bérénice Marlohe (who was also in the sci-fi Kill Switch, as well as Skyfall and Song to Song), plus Amy Louise Wilson, Alan Santini, and Tom Fairfoot. This has some solid VFX work and it seems like it could be a fun under-the-radar sci-fi film, I just hope it's better than it looks. This trailer is worth a watch.

31 May 2017 2:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Edinburgh International Film Festival will open and close with British films “God’s Own Country” and “England Is Mine,”and show Netflix’s “Okja,” which recently caused a stir as an official selection in Cannes.

Disney’s “Cars 3” will have its U.K. premiere amid the festival’s 151 feature films, which include titles from U.S. independents and a documentary section.

Having focused on Finland and Mexico in recent years, the international spotlight falls on Poland this year and includes the international premiere of Katarzyna Adamik’s thriller “Amok.”

Paul Schrader Writes an Anatomical Review of Terrence Malick’s ‘Song to Song,’ and It Doesn’t Involve Thumbs

27 May 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Whether talking about his own work or that of other filmmakers, Paul Schrader has never been one to mince words. Last night, the critic-turned-filmmaker reminded everyone who follows him on Facebook of his critical bent by sharing a very brief, very negative review of Terrence Malick’s latest: “If you could photograph the unwanted urine which dribbles from an old man’s penis you would have a film titled Song to Song.”

The film — which stars Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman — takes place in and around the Austin music scene. Reviews were mixed, which is typical of recent Malick fare; IndieWire’s Eric Kohn wrote that “there’s plenty of intrigue to the dissonance of a hard-rock lifestyle and Malick’s gentle touch, but much of the movie’s potential »

Val Kilmer: 'Lord, I'm never going to read this tripe!'

19 May 2017 1:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

After topping the A-list in the 90s, the actor retreated – but he’s back with an unlikely interest in art and a Twitter account filled with star-studded anecdotes

Few actors capture the myth of the mysterious artist better than Val Kilmer. He’s a southern California kid who grew up to become a poet, a playwright, and an A-list star. He’s also a hard man to get hold of. For months, I had been trying to track him down for an interview, only to discover that he rarely speaks to the press because of recent news items regarding his health.

Ironically, Kilmer is more visible now than he has been in years, stealing the show in Terrence Malick’s music drama Song to Song, appearing alongside Michael Fassbender in upcoming Jo Nesbø thriller The Snowman, touring the country with screenings of his one-man Mark Twain stage performance, and continuing to share hilarious, »

The Best Movies of 2017 So Far According to IndieWire

10 May 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It may seem like there are only certain times of the year when the movies are worth watching, but the reality is that quality cinema hits theaters and VOD platforms all year round. We haven’t reached the halfway mark in 2017 yet, there are already dozens of quality new releases, many of which will continue to deserve singling out by the end of the year. IndieWire’s film team has seen a lot of them. The following ranked list was developed out of the aggregate scores from top 10 lists contributed by film writers in New York and Los Angeles. In order to qualify, a movie must have either received a theatrical release in 2017 or become available on a VOD platform during that time. Movies that received awards-qualifying runs in 2016 do not count. In many cases, multiple films tied for votes and are designated as such.

Michael Fassbender Has Mad Break-Dancing Skills -- Watch Him Bust a Move!

5 May 2017 4:14 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Michael Fassbender can get down!

The Alien: Ressurection star was on the U.K.'s Graham Norton Show recently, where he opened up about his 1980s "break dance phase," prompting Jessica Chastain, who was also a guest, to cleverly get the 40-year-old actor to bust a move.

"What is break dance? Do you think you could show me?" Chastain responded, clearly goading the audience into encouraging Fassbender onto his feet.

Emmanuel Lubezki Video Essay ‘Making Beautiful Movies’ Pays Tribute to the Master Cinematographer — Watch

While presenting Emmanuel Lubezki with the Best Cinematography prize at the 2014 Lafca Awards, Kirk Honeycutt referred to the celebrated Dp as an auteur. That designation is usually reserved for directors, but in “Chivo’s” case it fits — few artists’ or technicians’ work is so immediately recognizable. James Hayes would likely agree, as he’s put together a new video essay called “Emmanuel Lubezki: Making Beautiful Movies.” Watch it below.

Review: ‘All These Sleepless Nights’ Is the Movie That Terrence Malick Has Been Trying to Make

7 April 2017 10:55 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It would be reductive and unfair to say that Michal Marczak’s “All These Sleepless Nights” is the film that Terrence Malick has been trying to make for the last 10 years, but it certainly feels that way while you’re watching it. A mesmeric, free-floating odyssey that wends its way through a hazy year in the molten lives of two Polish twentysomethings, this unclassifiable wonder obscures the divide between fiction and documentary until the distinction is ultimately irrelevant, using the raw material of real life to create a richer story of drift and becoming than “Song to Song” could ever manufacture from oblivious celebrities trying to find their characters between the notes.

Unfolding like a plotless reality show that was shot by Emmanuel Lubezki, this lucid dream of a movie paints an unmoored portrait of a city in the throes of an orgastic reawakening. From the opening images of fireworks exploding over downtown Warsaw, »
